In the middle of the 1960s, the brothers Kristen and Kjeld Skov developed the first ventilation system. The Skov brothers were running the largest egg production facility in Scandinavia at the old manor house of Oestergaard Hovedgaard, and the idea of a ventilation system was born in connection with the erection of two new livestock houses. The brothers were unable to locate a system with the capacity to ventilate houses of the envisioned magnitude, so they set about developing ventilation systems. Since then, new systems and products have been developed and today we are a world leader in our field. The Glyngoere headquarters have been expanded on several occasions and today there are more than 320 members of staff and in excess of 11,000 m² under roof.

The sale of ventilation solutions for poultry and pig houses began in 1966, thus establishing the foundation of today's SKOV. Ventilation systems manufactured by the brothers quickly gained popularity and owing to lack of space, they built a new factory in Glyngoere.
A subsidiary company was added in 2004 in Bangkok, Thailand, and since then a software development department was established in Malaysia.
